These are the days of long days, warm nights, celebrations that linger. These are the days we respect the sun, honor the shade, and bare our arms. Maybe it’s just me, but I find that the days of summer seem to be marked by the amount of time my long sleeves stay hibernating in the closet. Suffice it to say, my stash of adornments lives a full life in the summer season. After all, there is nothing that accents sun-kissed skin more than the perfectly designed piece of jewelry.
Soledad Proano creates wearable sunshine with her brand, Sol del Sur. Marrying form and function with a signature perspective, Proano’s pieces blend seemingly incongruous textiles and textures in such a way that you feel you understand the science of nature a bit more. The Braided Wrap Bracelet blends intricate craftsmanship with a chic, bohemian simplicity while the Brass and Fiber Braided Wrap Bracelet speaks of the balance between hard and soft elements and the ways in which we wear them. This season, you can wear your balance on your sun-kissed skin from dawn til dusk. These are the celebrations that linger.
